I love stationary… yes I know I’ve already done a post on my addiction to all things paper and pens. If you haven’t read that post check it out here: Stationary Lover but I warn you, I sound like a crazed addict. But I seriously love stationary. I love planners, I love stickers, I love notebooks and pens. I just love everything stationary. I mean the amount of notebooks we have laying around our house is insane and quite an annoyance to Matt. But this isn’t a post for me to dribble on about my obsession… again. This is about how I took that obsession just that little bit further.
I use to have a monthly subscription to a cosmetics box, but wasn’t feeling very satisfied in the content. I said to Matt that a stationary subscription would be such an awesome idea. It’s safe to say Matt didn’t think the same way as me. But, regardless of his disdain, I cancelled my membership for the cosmetics subscription and scrawled the internet for the best stationary subscriptions. After lots of search I came across Papergang, which is actually a subscription service provided by Ohh Deer, an amazing stationary website, so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed and I certainly wasn’t. Plus, the name Papergang is perfect, it makes me feel like I’m part of a really cool paper gang… Yes, I just heard myself! Each month is full of fabulous stationary pieces. So, I thought I would go through this months box with you!
Each months box is themed. We’ve had Gemma Correll boxes with a pug dog theme, a cactus floral theme, a geometric theme and this month… a marble theme. Normally content wise there is quite a lot of lower value items like pens, pencils, A5 notebooks, but this month we had a particularly larger valued item, therefore not as many products. That doesn’t bother me, I like variaton.
This months box contains:
- A4 Blue Marble Quarter Bound Notebook – Designed by Jamie Mitchell – RRP £12.95
- Copper Washi Tape – Designed by William Branton – RRP £2.50
- 1 Greeting Card – Varying Designs – RRP £2.50
- 1 Riso Printed Calender – Designed by Jamie Mitchell – RRP £1.95
I absolutely love the A4 Marble Notebook. On one side it’s plain paper and the other is lined and I love that you have the option. It would be perfect as a journal/diary to write down how your day was, how you are feeling and to create memories, using the plain side to stick photos or souvenirs from the day. Or you could use it for school revision, noting down points at work during a meeting or to write your fabulous blog ideas. The pages are edged in the gorgeous copper, which really finishes off the fabulous design. Every box contains a greetings card or 2 and I’m loving the geometric print of the one we got in this months box. I think the boxes are well worth the money as the products inside are such high qualiy items. It’s like a little present to yourself each month and a stationary freak like me can always put a good notebook to use!
